Meet our CR monitoring team

Sally Naser joined the Conservation Restriction Program in November of 2010 as the Conservation Restriction Monitoring Specialist based at the Doyle Center in Leominster. Sally previously served as Boundary Program Manager for the Appalachian Trail in partnership with the National Park Service and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. While there, Sally worked with 24 of the 31 volunteer trails clubs responsible for maintaining the Appalachian Trail between Virginia and Maine, assisting them with boundary maintenance, monitoring, and encroachment mitigation along the 1,300 miles and 112,000 acres of land that provide a protective buffer to the Appalachian Trail corridor. Perhaps Sally’s greatest contribution to the Trail was her ability to inspire, train, and involve volunteers dedicated to doing this important work while providing the leadership to keep them coming back. In Sally’s first six months with The Trustees, she has begun a number of new initiatives aimed at establishing more accurate CR boundaries, helping CR landowners (and their abutters) to be more responsible land stewards, and recruiting volunteers to assist in monitoring CR lands across the state. Sally, your stewardship prowess knows no bounds!
